Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

Car trouble I have a 91 dodge shadow. The car "bucks" then dies down then starts going again. The RPMS are fine for the gears. Could you tell me what it could be? It does it all the time not just in the cold weather.

Why wont my car accelerate?

If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

I have a 1988 dodge shadow 2.2L and it will start and rev to about or above 2000 rpms and when it tries to idle down it just dies. I replaced the iac and it ran fine until I powerwashed the engine bay out...

Sometimes the coolant sensor will cause this condition. It may be in advanced mode so when it's cool it wont idle properly. Also, try spraying the wires with a little silicone spray, the wires may have been affected by the powerwash. Good luck!

The car doesnt run

you have a sensor some were not likeing the heat. they can go this way sometimes. you need to run diagnostics as the engine is warming up and have it set to view the engine as it warms up to find the problem. it could be a cam sensor as they prone to do this when they are hot then work fine when they are cool.
